Sunseeker Debuts Predator 115 and Manhattan 73 at the London International Boat Show
Following in the footsteps of the successful Predator 130, Sunseeker’s newly launched 115 carries on the unmistakable look of the Predator series with aggressive lines and a sharp, long bow. This model sports lots of outdoor space, including a sundeck with a retractable shade (or optional hard top) and a hot tub, plus an aft beach deck for easy water access. A balcony off the main salon opens to views and brings in natural light. The 115 sleeps 10 guests in a full-beam, main-deck master suite and four light-filled staterooms down below. The yacht also accommodates five crew. A tender garage can house a couple of personal watercraft and an 18-foot tender. The Predator 115 can reach 26 knots and cruises at 20. At 10 to 12 knots, the yacht has a range of 1,250 nautical miles, depending on the engine package selected.
The Manhattan 73 also made its debut at the London boat show in January. This model retains the same design characteristics of the smaller Manhattan 63, but branches out with a new hull design that gives the yacht much more interior volume, which can be seen on the main and lower decks. The 73 offers up accommodations for eight in a midships master suite, two double cabins, and a twin cabin. An aft crew cabin sleeps two. The 73 stows its tender on a hydraulic platform that, once the tender is deployed, doubles as a beach deck.
Sunseeker expects the Manhattan 73 to hit a maximum speed of 32 knots and a cruise speed of 25. This model benefits from a joystick maneuvering system, making the docking process easier. (+44.1202.381.111, www.sunseeker.com)
